Pamp Suisse Lunar Rabbit Gold and Silver Bar
Following the lunar cycle, 2023 is the Chinese Year of the Rabbit, and is celebrated from the 22nd of January 2023 through to 9th February 2024. The latest addition to the popular Lunar Calendar Series celebrates the Rabbit with an ingot design featuring exceptional artwork original to PAMP, rich in traditional Chinese symbolism.
Available in 5g or 1oz of fine gold, or 10g or 1oz of pure silver, this charming design celebrates the Rabbit as the luckiest of the Chinese zodiac symbols. The Rabbit possesses a gentle nature, elegance and beauty, patience, alertness, a responsible nature, and represents long life.
The Rabbit is a very social creature once trust is established. Thanks to its agility and speed it will persevere and overcome obstacles to achieve a goal.
Its lucky directions are east and south, & it is strongly associated with the moon in ancient Chinese folklore. Water is the element associated with the 2023 Lunar New Year and here a Rabbit facing east snacks on a carrot plucked from an overturned basket of fresh vegetables harvested after a season of temperate rainfall. In the foreground is the napa cabbage, considered extremely lucky in Chinese culture.
Australian Lunar Rabbit Gold, Silver and Platinum Coin 1oz
2023 Year of the Rabbit coins feature the work of Ing Ing Jong, a member of the Mint’s design studio since 2011 – the previous rabbit year!
Capturing the animal in different moods, Gold and Platinum coins portray an energetic rabbit leaping among grasses with feathery plumes, while her silver artistry is a tranquil image of two rabbits under a budding springtime branch.
According to legend, the rabbit finished fourth in the Great Race, held to determine which animals should be represented in the lunar zodiac. Consequently, it has represented every fourth year in the 12-year lunar cycle.
Intelligence, creativity, vigilance and compassion are said to be among the personality traits bestowed on those born under the rabbit’s influence in 2023.
